over and beyond

Over and beyond all fathoming
I clambered
a higher mountain,
pathed an untrod ambition,
because You were there.
Your breath held me
through rarified atmosphere
and freezing ground.
I climbed because there was more to see
than an enveloping reality
that only proposed what has been,
obscuring what may be.
This is no resting place
nor seat in the auditorium
this is life
higher ground
and a chance
to taste tomorrow.
